To conclude Chorus #1 of the Blues Comping lesson series, here's last four measures of a twelve bar Jazz Blues form. Remember to play the voicings cleanly and connect them smoothly. Again, I've played the chords as written first followed by a version with comping rhythms the way I would play them in a performance context. After learning this example, connect Blues Comping #4 to #6 together. Have fun and if you like to get deeper into the voicings, write a second chorus of comping to complement the lesson.
In the next lesson, we'll look at the rhythmic aspect of comping!
